What if a car accident aggravates an existing injury?

Car accidents are quickly becoming a health issue in the state of Georgia. Every year, car accidents have contributed to many avoidable injuries. They cause severe injuries that prove to be expensive to treat.

We at Ponton Law are here to help you out in seeking justice after a car accident. If you get any injury after a car accident, you deserve to be paid for the damages, and this is a guarantee in the Georgia law. However, what if you already had a previous injury? 

Getting Compensation

Car accidents prove to be complicated and can drag along if you have a more complicated case like a pre-existing health condition or injury. This will make the situation more extensive, and ironically, you may require more funds to sort out your medical bills.

Getting compensation may be difficult, and in most cases, the driver at fault will always use the underlying medical condition to reduce the amount of payment that you deserve. In some cases, you will be blamed for causing the accident, and the defendant may also plead with the court to be exempted from any future medical expenses since you’re already undergoing medication.

In all these instances, our trained and qualified Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer is ready to represent you if a car accident aggravates an injury.
